2011, Day 233 - Royal temple

This is a massive doorway into one of the temples of the Grand Palace in Bangkok.  I love the exquisite friezes, the intricate tile work and the rich colors.  It was stifling hot in Bangkok and the heat was made worse because we were required to wear long trousers on the palace grounds.  While I don't regret going there I think if I were asked about what to see in Bangkok on a limited timeframe I would give the palace a miss, it is beautiful but are so many other interesting sights in this bustling city that I think are more exciting.

  1. This is an awesome perspective; it's like you're looking down a stair well that suddenly becomes a window. Gorgeous!
